Are you deleting these partitions from Windows setup screen?

 

Do you have anything on the hard drive you want to keep?

Press Shift + F10 keys to open Command Prompt. At the Command Prompt execute following commands one at a time:

Diskpart

list disk

select disk 0

clean 

exit

exit

Replace the zero (0) number with hard disk you want to delete everything.

 

After finish executing commands install Windows 10 on unallocated space. If there is any error message please post it for us to see.
